News on Sue...She has been transferred to an extended care facility in Hudson for physical therapy and  to help facilitate her recovery. She was in hospital for a month and I have no idea as to how long she will be  at the extended care facility. The next few days will be for evaluation on her condition. Needless to say I am a wreck ...

New items are posted. 6 very nice sgain dubhs and 4 more of the Japanese style swords I am finishing up for book IV..These new swords are GORGEOUS and the prices have been adjusted to my situation. So please take a look and see what we have added. These are really nice pieces...

I wish to thank all that have written in ..your care and concern is appreciated. I am still spending as much time with Sue as I can  but I am getting back to work on a limited basis until her condition improves to a point  as to where I can go back to full time..

Thank you once again...



The sale is on!  However due to unforeseen  circumstances I was not able to lit the new pieces. These will be listed on Monday, July 10 2023. Prices on the pieces already listed have been changed for this sale.. So please take a look and if anything speaks to you by all means feel free to contact me. Just remember that the 4 swords and the 6 sgain dubhs will be listed tomorrow...

Thank you all for your interest..


Update on Sue:

She is doing a bit better but she is still in the hospital and there are no immediate plans for her discharge as yet.  This whole thing is very stressful and well I am spending as much time there with her as I can. She has been in there almost a full month. There are many, many questions I would like to have answered and yet for some reason her Doctor refuses to even speak with me after numerous requests for him to do so. This is NOT good at all..but this discussion is for another time.. 

Sue is still a bit confused at times but hopefully this will lessen as time passes. I just want her home and healthy. Her birthday is coming up on the 13th of this month and I really hope she doesn't have to spend it in the damn hospital..

Other news: or coffers are about empty. Between my getting that damn infection and now Sue laid low with a broken leg things here have been slow production wise. On Sunday, July 09. 2023 I will be placing everything on sale with dramatically reduced prices. This sale will run 5 days. I will also be adding 4 more Japanese swords that I finished for book IV as well as 6 sgain dubh boot knives. I will post here once everything is photographed and listed on this sitey

All in all I wish to say THANK YOU to all of you who have sent in well wishes and expressed concern about Sue. It is so greatly appreciated.

In closing thank you...thank you very, very much



Hello:  An update on my wife Sue's condition. She is still hospitalized i Brooksville. She is now conscience but still quite a bit confused. She doesn't remember what happened before the surgery or even the fact that she had surgery. Hopefully this is a temporary condition. Physically she is doing fine so far..The surgeon said that everything looks good but she still can not stand on her own as they want her to be up and walking on the new knee as soon as possible. Hopefully that will happen in the next few days. All in all she still has a good ways to go on her recovery. I am spending as much time with her as I can and thankfully our son Nick is here to help with things. We both are hoping that she continues to improve.

I wish to thank you all for the kind words and sentiments..They are appreciated...I will be posting more updates as things progress



Something very unfortunate happened last week..My wife Sue suffered a slip and fall and that ended up pretty much destroying her knee replacement in her left leg as well as breaking her left femur in two places.  I have been spending a lot of time with her..

It took the hospital 4 days to address the broken leg and the knee replacement. NO ONE is telling me why it took so long, but it did.. I WILL find out. Sue did not do well in surgery. She currently has a fever as well as a breathing tube, the doctors are thinking it is either an infection or a fat  embolism from the broken bone and/or the knee replacement. She is currently in the ICU up in Brooksville as the local hospital here doesn't have the facilities to treat her properly. She has been in the ICU since Monday the 19th.. They did address the bone breaks when they replaced the knee..

So I am humbly asking that for those of you so inclined to please mention her in your prayers, we would greatly appreciate it if you did. She is in Mazda's hands now and I know the Wise Lord will look after her.

Now if anyone has been trying to call you know why no one has been answering. I am asking for your understanding while we deal with this situation. I will be doling updates as  things change. I wish this was a happier update.

In closing, thank you for you time and interest.
